After much anticipation, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif-starrer Bharat has released in cinemas today, on the auspicious occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr. The buzz that was created by Salman's various looks in the film, coupled with his chemistry with co-star Katrina Kaif, translated into a frenzy that seems unstoppable at the box office.

There were videos circulating on social media, from inside of the theaters, that show fans applauding and whistling to Salman's entry in the film and them some show audiences matching steps with Salman and Disha Patani's Slow Motion. All in all, fan reviews and opinions suggest that Bharat is a wholesome entertainer, a Salman stronghold that is expected to reign supreme over other releases.

Giving a screen count of Bharat's release, film trade analyst Taran Adarsh informed readers that the period drama film has opened in 6000 plus screens in India and abroad. In that, 4700 plus screens are in India and the rest 1300 are in places like Middle East, Australia, Germany, among others. In another tweet, Taran wrote that the film is releasing in 70-plus countries overseas.

Film trade analyst Sumit Kadel wrote in his tweet, earlier in the day that Bharat Bharat is all set for great opening on day one. He further added that the film has recorded a 60-65 percent booking for early morning shows.

Keeping these details in mind, Bharat may strike gold on day one if it earns anywhere near 35-38 cr. Salman 2016 Eid release Sultan registered a quite higher occupancy of 70-75% in the morning shows and raked in 36.59 cr on day one (figure via Box Office India).

In 2017, Salman's Tiger Zinda Hai struck a 34.12 crores opening, while 2018 Race 3 earned 27.69 cr on day one (figures via Box Office India). Going by the history and Salman's stardom tied with the festival season, it seems plausible to bet on Bharat collecting 35-38 cr on day one.

For Bharat, Salman is collaborating with Atul Agnihotri, who also produced the megastar's hit action film Bodyguard in 2011. So in a way, Bharat is a blend of handpicked, hit ingredients and is anticipated to out do expectations at the box office while delivering wholesome entertainment, coupled with national values.
